قُلْنَا يٰنَارُ كُونِي بَرْداً وَسَلَٰماً عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

We said, ‘O fire! Be coolness and safety for Abraham!’, and so it only consumed the bonds [with which he had been tied]. Its heat departed, but its luminosity remained. And by His words wa-salāman, ‘and safety’, Abraham was safe from (salima) death because of its coolness.
